Bible Verse Thursday ~ Light for our Path

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path. 
Psalm 119:105
My Project Sample for Bible Verse Thursday
Living on the coast of Maine, I’m surrounded by lighthouses. They draw a lot of tourists to the state and are a popular subject for photographers. The lighthouse has a significant purpose, which is to steer mariners in the thick fog or darkness of night, away from cliffs, reefs, shorelines and other dangerous areas. The lighthouse will sound a signal and shine a beacon of light on and off to lead ships to safety.

God’s word the Bible is our lighthouse – a lamp for our feet….a light for our path, a beacon of light to help us find our way. We just need to look to it to be shown the right way. There’s a song that says it well, titled The Lighthouse.

There's a Lighthouse on the hillside,
That over looks life's sea
When I'm tossed it sends out a light
That I might see
And the light that shines in darkness now
Will safely lead us o'er
If it wasn't for the Lighthouse
My ship would be no more.

And I thank God for the Lighthouse
I owe my life to Him
For Jesus is the Lighthouse
And from the rocks of sin
He has shown a light around me
That I could clearly see
If it wasn’t for the Lighthouse
Where would this ship be?
As the challenge hostess for Bible Verse Thursday at Christian Paper Crafts, I bring you another challenge this week.  To memorize this scripture from Psalm 119:105.  An easy one to commit to memory, and... to make a project  following the theme of this scripture. You can use this scripture on it, or another scripture of your choice.  You can link your project up here:  Bible Verse Thursday.

My project was made using stamps from Our Daily Bread Designs which offers the most wonderful assortment of scripture stamps and accessories. 

The lighthouse below is practically a hop, skip and a jump from my home.  I've photographed it many times, but this one is my favorite.  Notice the boat passing by.  This popular location was used to film a scene from the Forrest Gump movie.  More importantly it serves it's purpose well, still lighting the way for many.

I am linking my project in this post to an Our Daily Bread Design blog challenge - Anything Goes.  Have a blessed day my friends.  Thanks for stopping by.

Nice, Abby - Your scripture card is lovely - I really like the font and sepia tones. Once did a whole unit on lighthouses when I was homeschooling my daughter in 7th grade - so fruitful. I've always loved the connection to see God as the Guiding Light. And, what beauty you have just a "hop, skip, and jump" from your home!

Hi Abby, it´s been so long since I visited you blog - sorry for that, I love your photo of the lighthouses, we do have some here in Iceland and I have always been so fond of them, love to visit them when I can and photograph them :) I even made a tiny wall quilt with a lighthouse.
Wishing you a happy 4th of July my friend, and hope your days have been filled with good times.
Until next time. Love TORA
